In the wake of the deadly terrorist operations against New York and Washington in September 2001, the possiblity of nuclear attacks against American territory have once again become a subject of concern. The perceived risks to American security from the international diffusion of advanced technologies, along with weakened state controls over borders and international commerce, have hastened a dramatic restructuring of U.S. defense and national security policy.

This book gathers together eight prominent scholars, academics, and policy practitioners to address the major issues underlying the changes in the global security environment and evaluate the effectiveness of recent U.S. policy innovations.

Authors include Amy Zegart, University of California; Joe Cirincione, Carnegie Endowment; Jessica Stern, Harvard University; David Kay, Science Applications International Corporation; Rose Gottemoeller, Carnegie Endowment; William Keller, MIT; Joanna Spear, King’s College London; and Robert Litwak, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.
